NMHC SPECIAL REPORT: Apartments Fit for a Dog (or Cat)

NMHC SPECIAL REPORT: Apartments Fit for a Dog (or Cat)

Boca Raton, Fla.—Industry watchers at the 2014 National MultiFamily Housing Council (NMHC) Apartment Strategies Outlook Conference confirmed that 2014 will be the year of the lease up. And that if Millennials are the target market, investors will want to keep an eye on cutting-edge pet amenities. According to the most recent U.S. pet ownership statistics, 36.5 percent of American households own dogs and 30.4 percent own cats. Pet owners can be found in all age groups, but Millennials are perhaps the most demanding when it comes to their four-legged companions.

Exercise areas, grooming stations and daycare options are quickly becoming the norm. Developers that don’t provide relevant features for pet owners will be in for a rude awakening. And property management teams need to be friendly to pets as well, taking the time to connect the name with the face. “You have to smile and pet them when you run into them in the elevator,” advised Gregory Mutz, chairman & CEO of AMLI Residential.

NMHC’s Apartment Strategies Outlook conference and the subsequent NMHC Annual Membership Meeting are a must for apartment industry executives wanting to move deals along to the next level, reconnect with potential business partners and hear expert predictions for doing business in the year ahead. Besides the consensus that providing amenities specifically for pet owners is essential — this advice was repeated on a variety of conference panels — panelists also exchanged views on the most promising markets. Seattle is a favorite. With limited sites and opportunities, take a shot when you can. Conference panelists are also bullish on Houston.

And with fewer and fewer urban sites available, investors who had been focusing primarily on urban infill are once again getting excited about suburban locations provided they’re near jobs (the closer to infill and transportation nodes, the better the opportunity). It’s a matter of weighing the difference between urban versus suburban yield. Also, the entitlement process in urban areas is generally easier and more predictable.

Micro units were also a topic of discussion. Micro units help proforma because the rent per month is lower, the cost per unit is lower and marketing looks good. But have they been around long enough to know whether this strategy is working for investors? According to Ben Pisklak, Chief Investment Officer, Gables, “The few we’ve done have been successful, but we’re also seeing demand for two bedrooms — and lots of storage.”

Mutz is also seeing more demand for storage as well as three-bedroooms.

Residents speak out on Gulfstream development

Residents speak out on Gulfstream development

Date: January 13, 2014
by: David Conway | News Editor

Tim Litchet, the city’s director of Neighborhood and Development Services, speaks at a meeting regarding a proposed bayfront development on Monday at City Hall.

City staff was forced to haul extra seats into Room 112 at City Hall Monday, as the crowd inside had expanded beyond the space’s original capacity in advance of a meeting regarding a controversial traffic study.



Vue Sarasota Bay is a condominium and hotel project under development at the corner of U.S. 41 and Gulfstream Avenue
. The Kolter Group, the project’s developer, has waited for a final seal of approval from the city while staff considered whether a traffic study, commissioned by the city, met the standards outlined in the zoning code and comprehensive plan.

The major contentions from the Ritz Residences are that the traffic study didn’t measure the development’s impact on adjacent streets or provide a satisfactory plan for managing internal traffic. City Attorney Robert Fournier said last week those complaints had some merit. In particular, the intersection of U.S. 41 and Ritz Carlton Drive — which wasn’t studied because it’s not signalized — would see significant backups, Ritz residents at Monday’s meeting asserted.

July’s statistics are released for Sarasota’s Real Estate Market and I am pleased to share the great news!

Closed sales for our area in June are over 30% higher over a year ago: July 2012. The average sales price for a single family home is up from Junes’ average of $200k to $227, 500 median price.

Locally, sales PRICES are up 16% from a year ago!

That’s great news for many people. Nationally, prices are up over 17% from a year ago. Inventory is still very low inventory with an absorption rate is 3.1 months for homes, 4.6 months for condos, and nationally 6.5 months of inventory. Remember that 6 months is a balanced market, anything less than that is a Seller’s market. Our recent supply of inventory is down 13% from last year, and the last few months have been the lowest inventory levels in a decade.

If you are considering selling, now is the time to have a consultation. Seller’s are getting almost 97% of their asking price on average in our market. Here is more great news: 25% of the properties sold in July were (REO/bank owned) foreclosures or short sales, down from 51% of properties sold a year ago!!! And only 11.5% of the properties currently listed are distressed (REO or short sale).

Quay property in Sarasota, FL, for sale

Quay property in Sarasota, FL, for sale

Date: August 15, 2013
by: David Conway

The door has opened for the sale of the former Sarasota Quay property, as the Irish government gained control of the land Monday.

The property at Fruitville Road and U.S. 41, once the planned home of an ambitious combination of residential, hotel, retail and office space, is now on the market after two years of litigation prevented any movement regarding the land.

sdreznin@naimanasota.com or 941-961-8199

“There’s no pressure whatsoever to sell the property,” Shelowitz said. “As the market continues to rise, and as the value continues to rise, eventually you’ll the type of offer that’s being sought.”

The property was up for auction to the public Monday morning, but no serious offers were made. That’s because National Asset Sarasota’s maximum bid of $50 million was disclosed to bidders, Shelowitz said.
